Providing high quality training opportunities for WSU students is an important goal of the RIA.  This year the RIA partnered with Eric Vidoni PhD from the University of Kansas Alzheimer’s Disease Center to place two students from WSU in their Kansas Dementia & Aging Research Training (KDART) program. The program provides undergraduate students research training in brain aging and dementia through structured projects. Projects emphasize the development of good research practice skills. Interns participate in a 12 week project assisting with research being conducted by their internationally recognized faculty mentors.
